The Democrats appear to have realized that they can't simply surrender the countryside without a fight. The associated Press details a plan by Democrats to make inroads into the heartland of America.
They are going to have their work cut out for them; Middle America doesn't like the direction the party is taking.
It appears the Democrats are going to use things like infrastructure spending to appeal to the farmers and country vote. Can this overcome the slobbering fawning of the Democrats to the urban identity politics vote? I doubt it. But after the last few elections they are starting to realize that there are more people in America than just Hispanics, homosexuals, and #meetoo abortion advocates.
I'll be curious how they plan to sell, say, Kamala Harris or AOC to ranchers in Wyoming. Maybe Elizabeth Warren can put on some spurs and a stetson and pretend she's a cowboy instead of an Indian?
The thing was, the problem had been recognized and the necessary money HAD been allocated by the legislature to fix it. But the DFL Party (that's what we call our Democrats here) would not allow the money to be spent to fix the bridge, insisting that it go for social programs (what I like to call "fat kids") instead. But the word somehow didn't get out, because the (Red) Star Tribune never reported it.
I just don't see the Democrats spending a lot on infrastructure, because as we know, they don't want us driving cars. They want us as captives, on trains preferably, where we can't listen to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Joe Pags. Oh, buses too, so main roads could be fixed up. Don't believe me? Come to Minneapolis and St. Paul and drive around, especially in the neighborhoods. Bob'll tell you, and so will Jack. The roads are horrible.
